John Coulter Sage was born on a horse ranch in southeastern Arizona in 1851. His father was an ex-mountain man and Army scout who built and operated the ranch with a Mexican partner. His mother was a Chiricahua Apache. Sage was raised in all three cultures. Sage went to sea when he was sixteen, and was shipwrecked off Okinawa, where a Buddhist monk befriended him. He was taught to fight and think. This is a tale of Sage's adventurous life as an Apache youth, cowboy, sailor, Mexican Vaquero, drover, deputy sheriff, and much more.

Bob Wood has worked as a cowboy, air crewman in the Navy, and professional ski patrolman at Mammoth. He worked for five summer seasons as a Wilderness Ranger. He patrolled the Ansel Adams and John Muir Wilderness areas in the Sierras for two summers on horseback, and for three summers carrying a backpack. He graduated in forestry from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and retired after thirty-five years with the US Forest Service. He currently resides with his wife Alicia in southern California.
